Stillman School of Business – Seton Hall University

Seton Hall Flex MBA Program Structure

Since most students enrolled in Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business work full-time, classes are offered during the evenings and weekends. Students sharpen their knowledge and skills in the School’s vibrant learning centers such as the Market Research Center, the Trading Room, the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, and the Sharkey Sports Polling Institute.

Curriculum

The Seton Hall Flex MBA curriculum comprises Pre-Qualification, Foundation, Essential Knowledge, and Breadth “sequences” of core courses. After the first three core sequences are completed, students may pursue electives and concentrations as part of the Breadth Sequence. Students may be able to waive courses in the online Pre-Qualification Sequence if they have already completed equivalent courses in the past five to seven years, depending on the course. Certain courses may only be waived through a “challenge exam.”

The Foundation sequence includes four courses – Analytical Methods and Information Systems for Business, Accounting and Legal Considerations, Financial and Economic Analysis and Organizational and Market Dynamics. The Essential Knowledge sequence includes two courses, namely Social Responsibility and International Perspective. Students may then pursue electives in the Breadth Sequence, though eight elective credits must be selected from outside the student’s area of concentration.

Those interested in focusing their MBA studies in one subject may pursue a concentration in Finance, Management, Accounting, Sport Management, International Business, Marketing, Supply Chain Management or Information Technology Management. Students must complete a minimum of twelve credits per concentration, with certain concentrations requiring more, such as fifteen credits for Accounting and thirteen for Sport Management. Students can choose up to two concentrations.

All Seton Hall Flex MBA students are required to complete a capstone and MBA Service project. The service project is a hallmark of the Stillman program and aligns with the school’s mission to instill leadership and service in its students. Projects are determined by the proposals that students develop during the Knowledge Sequence as part of the Social Responsibility course.

Careers

The Stillman School Business Career Center provides MBA students with resources such as mock interviewing, networking, career management sites and career assessments. The center also offers The Pirate Mentoring Program, which pairs current students with Seton Hall alumni.

The Stillman School has a dedicated career counselor who helps support the school’s placement efforts.

The School’s metropolitan location gives students easy access to professionals and job opportunities at some of the largest and most well-respected companies in the world. More than 70 percent of the Stillman School’s alumni live within easy commuting distance of the school, providing input on curriculum and networking connections for current students. The program has students from many of the leading companies in the NY metro area. It is not uncommon for some students to hire or refer peers whom they’ve met in the program.

Tuition and Financial Aid

For the 2017-18 academic year, students pay $1,305 per credit for the Seton Hall Flex MBA. All graduate students are also required to pay a university fee each semester, with full-time students paying $126, part-time students paying $100 and summer semester students paying $51. Full-time and part-time students are also responsible for a technology fee of $200 and $100 respectively.

All Seton Hall graduate students are eligible to apply for graduate assistantships. The University also offers semester-long tuition payment plans, allowing students four or five months in which to pay tuition without accruing interest. Both plans require students to first pay an enrollment fee.

The school also encourages students to apply for federal loans, such as Stafford, Perkins, and Federal Graduate PLUS Loans.

Admissions Procedures

Those interested in applying to the Seton Hall Flex MBA must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. The program recommends that applicants have a minimum GMAT score of 500 or Minimum GRE of V=152 and Q=152, and minimum GPA of 3.0. Managers who have a minimum of five years work experience in a managerial position may be eligible for a GMAT/GRE waiver through application to the MBA Alternate Route Admissions (ARA) Program. Candidates who have already completed graduate degrees, such as a Ph.D., M.D., J.D., MBA or a master’s in a business field, may also request a GMAT waiver. The ARA program maintains its own set of extensive requirements that prospective students must consider when applying.

MBA applicants are required to submit the online application form along with a current résumé, a two-paragraph personal statement, a writing sample, GMAT/GRE scores and an application fee of $75. Transcripts and recommendations must be mailed to the Stillman admissions committee. Students are required to submit one letter of recommendation, unless they are pursuing the Sport Management concentration, in which case three letters must be submitted.
